Brian M. Rust

Since 2004, Brian has been actively involved in the development and implementation of growth oriented business strategies for both publicly-traded and privately held companies. Brian spent the first half of his career working in sales production, management, and strategic training positions during the merger of two Fortune 500 financial institutions. These positions provided in depth experience involving client relationship development, business plan implementation, external partnership development, client retention, sales management, production forecasting and conflict resolution.

Brian left the corporate setting in 2009 to put his experience to work as a self-employed entrepreneur, and has since established and grown a number of successful small businesses that serve the Central Florida region. Brian actively oversaw and developed the risk management, marketing, service fulfillment, consumer relations, and branding strategies for each of these companies. This wide range of firsthand experience has provided Brian with a unique understanding of the challenges confronting other local business leaders in today's evolving market.

Brian and his fiance Maria enjoy traveling abroad, cooking for friends and family, and staying up to date with the world's current events.
